Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 15
If you're on an ozeki run, it's always nice to win a yusho along the way. Yumezukuri put the cherry on the cake as Reeeen faltered (courtesy of Hakuho) at the last hurdle.
Jakusotsu won the death match in Juryo to take the divisional title. And Balon came through on the final day to win the Makushita division.
No tie-breaks required this time in any division - a rarity.
We'll be back in September with a new ozeki (pending the gamesmaster's approval of course). In the meantime, I'd like to remind players that this game has an excellent stats page that you can access from the main page. It has detailed stats on everything you can think of, including yearly stats on top of career and tournament ones. Spend some time navigating and see how you match up with your peers.
See you in two months. And congratulations to all the winners.

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 14
A dramatic day in the Makuuchi yusho race, but before we cover that, congratulations are in order for Sekiwake Yumezukuri as he has now achieved the 31 wins in three tournaments required for ozeki promotion with a day to spare. This will be his second stint at the rank.
He won today to go 11-3 while leader Reeeen lost (after an 11-bout winning streak) to delay the yusho verdict until the final day. He now leads with Yumezukuri and fights Komusubi Asashimaru tomorrow. A win for Reeeen would likely give him the yusho as he has a 4-point advantage over Yumezukuri. Yumezukuri will probably need to beat the yokozuna and hope Reeeen loses to take the title. Yokozuna Pandaazuma has a 10-4 record so he needs to beat Yumezukuri and hope Reeeen loses, where he would then win by virtue of his superior scoring.
Jakusotsu is now the sole leader of Juryo but he fights Unkonoyama, who is one win behind, tomorrow. Unkonoyama is also only one point (in scoring terms) behind so he would need to beat Jakusotsu by at least one point to take the yusho. The other contenders are unlikely to figure as their scores are a little too low.
Balon and Ufoshin lead Makushita with 12-2 records. Balon has a very high score so as long as he gets the same result as Ufoshin, he will win the yusho. Ufoshin's only hope is to win his bout while Balon loses his.
Good luck to all the contenders!

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 13
Sekiwake Yumezukuri walked into a wall in the form of fellow Sekiwake Rupatengu today while co-leader Reeeen had an easy day at the office. Reeeen is now in pole position for a first-ever Makuuchi yusho, but still needs to get past stiff sanyaku opposition to seal the deal.
Jakusotsu and Unkonoyama both won to stay in the lead in Juryo. Chelseayama and Huchimama are right on their tails. The complicated dance continues in Makushita - the division is now led by Balon, Oyama and Ufoshin.

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 12
Sekiwake Yumezukuri and Reeeen came through their day-12 tests and now lead Mauji by one win.
Unkonoyama and Jakusotsu lead Juryo with 9 wins. Some drama in Makushita as Kaito lost and allowed four chasers a share of the lead.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/7/15

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 11
Both Makuuchi leaders won so Sekiwake Yumezukuri marches closer to ozeki promotion. Reeeen joins him at 9-2. Yokozuna Pandaazuma, Sekiwake Rupatengu and Mauji are one win off the pace.
Unkonoyama, Jakusotsu and Huchimama lead Juryo with 8 wins. And Kaito wins again to go 10-1 in Makushita.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/7/14

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 10
Sekiwake Yumezukuri and Reeeen kept up their winning ways to get early winning records and now lead the Makuuchi division. This bodes well for the sekiwake's ozeki run - he needs three more wins out of five.
A group of six leads Juryo with a group of seven one win off the pace - who will break out? Very open indeed. And Kaito leads Makushita all alone with 9 wins.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/7/13

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 8
Yokozuna Pandaazuma along with Sekiwake Yumezukuri and Sekiwake Rupatengu lead the Makuuchi division with three Maegashira hopefuls, all with 6-2 records. The two sekiwake are both on ozeki runs. Yumezukuri needs 11 wins while Rupatengu needs 14 (or perhaps a 13-2 yusho). The former is obviously in the stronger position as he needs five more wins out of seven bouts to get the nod. Rupatengu can't drop any more bouts.
Four players lead Juryo at 6-2, including former Sekiwake Metzinowaka. And another four lead Makushita, including the veteran drone Sakanotori.

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 5
Komusubi Kakushoyamaii now leads Makuuchi with a group of four Maegashira with 4-1 records.
Unkonoyama is the only unbeaten player left in Juryo. Six players remain undefeated in Makushita, including the promising Kaito.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/7/8

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 2
Welcome to the Nagoya basho!
We have an interesting shin-sanyaku in Komusubi Kakushoyamaii. The word for his rise in this game is probably 'meteoric' and he already has a Makuuchi yusho under his belt (in his debut no less). He has enormous potential and the scoring bears that out. He is currently 2-0 and will be hoping for a strong winning record to cement a case for early ozeki promotion.
Sekiwake Yumezukuri needs 11 to return to the ozeki rank but he has had the worst possible of starts and needs to regroup. Sekiwake Rupatengu needs 14 and Sekiwake Chankoyama needs 13 - both unlikely but not impossible - targets to achieve promotion.
In the early stages Yokozuna Pandaazuma is an early leader along with Rupatengu and Kakushoyamaii. The lower divisions are still in the process of forming their leaderboards as usual.
Best of luck to all the contenders!
